Children must learn to be cautious of irrational adults' ideas that spread like viruses, fueled by emotion and simplicity rather than logic. Children must learn to question their intuition and develop healthy skepticism to think critically. Children must learn to verify information from trusted sources with credible evidence and diverse perspectives from people of different backgrounds. Children must learn to practice cognitive hygiene by prioritizing reliable sources and engaging in fact-based discussions. Children must learn to embrace intellectual humility and be open to revising beliefs based on evidence. Children must learn to avoid the seductive appeal of certainty and be wary of oversimplified narratives about the supernatural. Children must learn to spot emotional manipulation, such as fear and outrage, disguised as logic. Children must learn to the importance of critical thinking, fact-checking, and being vigilant against harmful ideas in order to contribute to the building of a more informed and rational society in the future.

When one's mind is poisoned, their perception of the world becomes tainted with negativity. This distortion can lead them to see evil where it may not exist. A poisoned mind filters information through a lens of suspicion and distrust. This means they are more likely to interpret neutral or even positive events as malicious or harmful.

society poisoned the minds of children, what can we do ?

Posted by EngineeringProfit > 1 month ago | Report Abuse

Two-pronged approach:

A. For the children

Do this and the children will have a sensible balanced world view and be immuned for life:

1 Replace them in a proper learning institution that promote Inclusivity: Encourage inclusivity by emphasizing the value of all individuals regardless of differences in beliefs, backgrounds, or identities.

2. Ensure schools for young children must be committed to expose children to diverse cultures, beliefs, and perspectives to foster tolerance and understanding.

3. Educators must swear to Ethanism Oath i.e. to promote peaceful conflict resolution: Teach children skills for peaceful conflict resolution, empathy, and negotiation to reduce the likelihood of resorting to extreme ideologies or actions.

B. For the society

Trying to cure fanaticism after it has taken root requires significant resources in terms of time, money, and expertise. Preventing it from developing in the first place can be a more efficient use of resources.

1. Awareness campaign: Problem recognition

When one's mind is poisoned, their perception of the world becomes tainted with negativity. This distortion can lead them to see evil where it may not exist.

i. **Filtering Information**: A poisoned mind filters information through a lens of suspicion and distrust. This means they are more likely to interpret neutral or even positive events as malicious or harmful.

ii. **Confirmation Bias**: Poisoned minds often suffer from confirmation bias, where they actively seek out evidence that supports their negative beliefs. This leads to a reinforcing cycle of seeing evil even in situations where it doesn't exist.

iii. **Exaggeration and Misinterpretation**: Small, innocuous patterns, comments, jokes,actions or statements can be blown out of proportion or misinterpreted when viewed through a poisoned mindset. This can create unnecessary conflict and tension.

2. Human Quality Recultivation

What to put to a full stop: The worst deterioration of human quality occurs when individuals engage in a cycle of tit for tat behavior, refuse to forgive, show mercilessness, and engage in defamation through slander, shifting blame for unidentified tailoring errors onto others.

i. **Tit for Tat Behavior:** This behavior perpetuates negativity and escalates conflicts rather than resolving them. It fosters a culture of revenge and retaliation, leading to a breakdown of trust and cooperation among individuals and communities.

ii. **Refusal to Forgive:** Forgiveness is a fundamental aspect of human relationships and societal harmony. When people refuse to forgive, they hold onto grudges and resentments, poisoning their own well-being and hindering opportunities for reconciliation and growth.

iii. **Mercilessness:** Lack of mercy and compassion towards others reflects a disregard for human dignity and empathy. It can result in unjust treatment, cruelty, and the dehumanization of individuals, eroding the moral fabric of society.

iv. **Defamation through Slander:** Engaging in slanderous behavior, especially when attributing unidentified errors to others maliciously, not only damages reputations but also contributes to a culture of falsehoods and deceit. It undermines trust, spreads misinformation, and can have severe consequences for individuals and communities.

(By indulging in these destructive behaviors, individuals not only harm others but also diminish their own moral character and the overall quality of human interactions.)
